Bill Self was imploring his team to get back on defense for the final possession of the first OT period against Oklahoma State on Wednesday night. While doing so, he unintentionally demonstrated he could pull off a mean MC Hammer “U Can’t Touch This” dance impersonation.
If the Jayhawks coach was equipped with a pair of parachute pants and a crew of backup dancers, he could have totally looked the part. (And if his costume in the “Jeff Withey Block Party” video is any indication, he would have no qualms about dressing up in absurd costumes.)
Kansas held the Cowboys scoreless in the final three seconds and KU won in the second overtime, 68-67. We can only hope this led to more Hammer Time in the Jayhawks’ locker room.
For a direct comparison of Self and Hammer, just look at the two GIFs below.
